Thought for the day

"I just wonder what it would be like to be reincarnated in an animal whose species had been so reduced in numbers than it was in danger of extinction. What would be its feelings toward the human species whose population explosion had denied it somewhere to exist.... I must confess that I am tempted to ask for reincarnation as a particularly deadly virus." -- Prince Philip, in his Forward to "If I Were an Animal" - United Kingdom, Robin Clark Ltd., 1986.

NEED SOME HELP!

Godzilla, or Gojira, has been one of the most enduring and iconic kaiju (Japanese giant monsters) in popular culture. Undoubtedly, the monster created by the atomic bomb explosion has captured the imagination of people around the world.

 

The fiery radioactive animal, the poignant embodiment of the fear of the entire population, became a beloved international symbol of destruction, spawning nearly thirty sequels.

 

The film was directed by Ishiro Honda, with special effects by Eiji Tsuburaya. It stars Akira Takarada, Momoko Kochi, Akihiko Hirata, and Godzilla along with Takashi Shimura, Haruo Nakajima, and Katsumi Tezuka.

 

In the film, Japanese officials deal with the sudden appearance of a giant monster, whose attacks raise fears of a nuclear holocaust during post-war Japan.
